NGD - Blackjack ATX C7 is here!

Well it's here! Didn't take too long to get here, which is cool. It plays and sounds awesome, but I'll get more into that later. For now, pics!

Cool, I like it. The inlay doesn't look too bad in those pictures.

Umm... Are the frets a bit flattened though?

frets flattened? not really more so than any other guitar with jumbo frets I've had. Not as round as my JS though. They feel great.

Cool,

I seem to be overly paranoid about that now lol.

How does it sound in regards to the mahogany + ebony + Blackouts mix? Seems like it would be a good one.

That's crazy, I was just joining the forum so I could ask about Schecters quality. Are soundclips coming? Where did you order from?

The combination of the non-glossy black with the cream binding looks classy as hell, yet badass at the same time. Almost like a leather tuxedo or something....

It sounds great, though I've really only played it through a Randall MTS series with the 1086 module, which sounds amazing btw.

A lot of clarity, and nice snap to it. Comparing it to the mahogany Carvin I had, it must be due to either the pickups or the scale, because the Carvin wasnt even close.

Yeah, clips are coming, though it'll probably be later this week. Between longer hours at work and a 9-month old that doesn't want to sleep lately, I've been a bit lacking in time.

I ordered it from my friend's store, Goodtime Music in Streamwood, IL. Lots of cool ....; Schecter, Jackson, PRS, G&L, Randall, Orange, and Rivera.

^I confirmed that with Schecter and DCGL, because the Schecter site said 25.5".

Congrats dude! Looks awesome. Its making me wonder if I should have gotten the black instead of the white. We will see I guess.

Actually Pat at Goodtime Music likes the white better. He says it looks just like the vintage Les Paul Customs from the 60's (he has two).

He likes mine too, but said the white is friggin' awesome.

Yeah I can measure it, but really it's a Hellraiser with a satin black finish and Blackouts. Nothing too terribly unique!

Freaking nice finish on a very nice guitar, congrats! First one on this board?
Can't wait to see some "real" pics of a white one with a Floyd!

Yeah, I think it's the first on the board.

I don't think they're doing the C7's with a Floyd, are they? I think it was just the 6's for the ATX series. I could be wrong though.
